Tasting Notes

Both vineyards are located on Van Sickle ridge in the southern part of the Walla Walla Valley. This Malbec is gorgeous in the glass with its inky purple hue. One whiff, and a cascade of berry aromas captivate your attention. Blueberry, blackberry, huckleberry, marionberry, along with hints cracked peppercorns and cocoa nibs. This wine displays excellent balance, silky supple tannins, and a delicious finish that lingers. Pair this wine with elk, bison or grass-fed beef, simply seasoned with salt and pepper and accompanied by a creamy mushroom sauce or melted blue cheese. Also works well with rosemary, sage seasoned roasted pork. Enjoy!
